If you would like to add wire into the arms and legs of your monster, now is the time to pull the wire out! I used a 14GA, and I picked mine up at Canadian Tire.
You will cut a piece of wire long enough to go through both arms and the body with a little room on either end. Now to find out exactly how much that is I normally lay the body and arms out and them measure it out and cut it.
Now work the piece of wire through the body, and use your pliers and bend each end. By bending the ends that will help prevent the wire from poking through.
Now you can put the arms over the wire and sew them in place. and you will do the same thing for the legs, if you would like them to be poseable.
Place the collar around the neck and sew the two ends together.
Weave in all of your ends and trim them. And that's it, you now have your very own sweet little monster!
